New roof lantern

Garnalex has launched a Sheerline aluminium roof lantern.

“It combines sleek low-level styling and cutting-edge performance to create one of the most secure, thermally efficient and beautiful lanterns on the market,” the company said.

The S1 roof lantern is available in three stocked colours across 10 different styles, with two and four-way options, and designed around 28mm glazing.

Sheerline’s S1 includes overlapping cast end caps to prevent the bar and top caps from being removed, and anti-tamper screws are provided to attach end caps to roof bars.

High-security two- and four-way top caps are also bolted through from the inside preventing easy removal. The arrangement of the interlocking eaves beam means that the glass cannot be removed from the outside, and features a patent pending glass lock, lowering the risk of break-ins even further, the company said.

Designed with the same Thermlock multi-chambered thermal breaks as the Classic and Prestige systems, the S1 roof lantern offers maximum thermal performance throughout its design, from the eaves beam and ridge to each rafter assembly.

Cold bridging is prevented by ensuring the aluminium is fully encapsulated below the glass line with a unique co-extruded perimeter seal creating a weathertight seal for enhanced performance and energy efficiency.

Slim, consistent 50mm rafter, hip and ridge sightlines maximise light flooding into homes, and the S1 lantern features ultra-low line aesthetics, so rafter and hip top caps sit just 8mm above the glazing level on the exterior, creating a sleek modern look.

Roger Hartshorn, CEO of Garnalex, said: “Not only is [the S1] beautiful, but it also tackles some of the security issues that customers face with existing products. Our team of experts have reinvented aluminium roof lanterns into something that is ultra-secure and thermally efficient as well as being stylish and contemporary.”
